Before one can get one’s foot in the door, one needs to be aware that there is actually a doorway. This is the mission of the EMWA Ambassador’s Programme – to inform the world about medical writing as a career path. In other words, we set up signs that lead to the door. In this edition of GYFD, Abe Shevack, who pioneered this initiative, provides an update on the latest ambassador activities. In September, I was on a 2-week business trip in the Asia-Pacific region. I was able to take a short weekend trip to the Philippines to visit my family and be an EMWA Ambassador at a careers event at my alma mater. I would like to thank Michalyn and Jude, two Biology students who volunteered to write about the event.
